The LG Chocolate BL40 is another that may tempt buyers

Equipped with a number of eco-friendly features, LG's newest model could be of particular interest to those looking to recycle mobile phones.

This is because the GD510 - which also goes by the name Pop - is claimed by the South Korean manufacturer to be designed with the environment in mind when it comes to energy consumption.

It was advised this week buyers can expect the handset top reflect LG's green agenda by adding solar charging to a list of features that include a full touchscreen and integrated media player.

The GD510 boasts a battery cover that is equipped with a special panel that absorbs the power of the sun during periods of daylight.

LG explained: "10 minutes under the sun? provides up to two minutes 15 seconds of talk time or up to 180 minutes of standby time."

It was also advised an eco-calculator had been built into the device's menu system that allows the user to monitor how much they have reduced CO2 emissions by using the technology.

Other models in the LG line up include the recently launched BL40 Chocolate.
